Python: Accepts six numbers as input and sorts them in descending order

Python Basic - 1: Exercise-42 with Solution

Write a Python program that accepts six numbers as input and sorts them in descending order.

Input:
Input consists of six numbers n1, n2, n3, n4, n5, n6 (-100000 ≤ n1, n2, n3, n4, n5, n6 ≤ 100000). The six numbers are separated by a space.

Pictorial Presentation:

Python: Accepts six numbers as input and sorts them in descending order

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

print("Input six integers:")
nums = list(map(int, input().split()))
nums.sort()
nums.reverse()
print("After sorting the said ntegers:")
print(*nums)

Sample Output:

Input six integers:
 15 30 25 14 35 40
After sorting the said ntegers:
40 35 30 25 15 14

Previous: Write a Python program to compute and print sum of two given integers (more than or equal to zero). If given integers or the sum have more than 80 digits, print "overflow".
Next: Write a Python program to test whether two lines PQ and RS are parallel. The four points are P(x1, y1), Q(x2, y2), R(x3, y3), S(x4, y4).
